I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Highly profitable company, good management

Cons

The semiconductor industry is highly competitive and has too many companies willing to accept low margins. Don't expect to make quick money off stock.

    I have been working at Maxim Integrated full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Maxim focuses on products with good margins. That allows the company to invest in new technologies, compensate employees fairly, and survive economic downturns.

    Cons

    The semiconductor industry is extremely competitive (actually overserved). IC Companies are constantly struggling to maintain profitability, which is why many of them are toast.

    Pros

    Company isn't going to be going under
    Has decent health insurance
    Individual departments run themselves, so it's possible you can get an awesome manager and have a great working experience at Maxim.

    Cons

    Employees are expendable commodities
    Individual departments run themselves, there are no company-wide ethics to support you.
    The poorest "severance" packages I've ever seen, if you're lucky to even get one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the public to see Maxim as a good place to work, MAKE it a good place to work, instead of just trying to market a new image.
